Wondering if the XDefiant servers are down? Checking the server status is pretty easy — you just have to know where to look. With so many players flocking to Ubisoft’s team-based shooter, it’s no surprise that issues would arise. Still, not being able to log in or find matches can be frustrating, and getting kicked is even worse. Chances are, it’s not your internet connection, and you can eliminate that by knowing how to check the XDefiant server status.

How to Check XDefiant Server Status

If you’re getting disconnected or having trouble logging into the game, I recommend checking the server status for XDefiant through the game’s official Twitter account, the official XDefiant support page, or Downdetector.

I suggest following the live feed on the official XDefiant page, as it indicates any server problems in real-time. The Downdetector page covers the entire range of Ubisoft Connect servers at the moment, not just XDefiant.

Check Your Platform’s Server Status

It’s also possible that the problem is not coming from Ubisoft and their servers but from your platform. I suggest checking these links for PlayStation and Xbox server status pages as well:
